So many, can't think of them all, but robins, thrushes & some small finch/sparrow type birds. Usually pale blue & speckled.

Either Blue jays or blue birds and Sometimes if you buy an Americana chicken(chickens that lay colored eggs)they will lay blue eggs

You now know (if you didn't before) that robins lay blue eggs. Lots of other birds do too, of course, but blue birds are probably the kind you're most likely to find.

House Finches, Starlings, American Robin.

FYI: Only about 4-5% of bluebirds actually lay white eggs.

In the Eastern United States, the birds that commonly lay blue eggs are bluebirds, robins, and some finches. However, some wrens lay grayish eggs that could be mistaken for blue. A resource you might use, the Royal Albert Museum, could help you identify the egg you found and help answer your question: http://www.royalalbertamuseum.ca/vexhibit/eggs/vexhome/egghome.htm

Well if you found a blue egg, Robins are the most common bird in the U.S.A. and they lay a spotted blue egg.They are quite small compared to other eggs.

Starlings also lay blue eggs. They are just little black birds that like to make their homes in the holes of the eaves of houses.

Robins and blue birds. Do not worry about touching the eggs. It is a myth that the mother will ignore the egg or a baby bird if touched by human hands. Please pick it up and try to either find the nest or take it to a vet.
